Many purified virions, particularly enveloped virus particles (such as retrovirus, hepadnavirus, herpesvirus, orthomyxovirus, and paramyxovirus), contain protein kinase (PK) activity. This type of PK has been called virion-associated protein kinase (VAPK). Even though some VAPKs are identified either as a cellular PK or viral-encoded kinase, many remain to… CONTINUE READING
